I used a line fill technique to create the buttons and seam on the ice skate in order for the Cricut pen to be able to fill in the area when being cut out. The cream oval is embossed with snowflakes in order to give the card more of a wintery feeling.
Home made cards are always great to send to someone, as they are made with the receiver in mind.

Cutting Out the Ice Skate Card
Unzip the download file.

The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the blue Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
